For those of you not familiar with Amex Offers, it’s a program available through most Amex cards, where different cards are eligible for different savings and bonus offers. In many cases the offers can be huge, and more than offset the annual fee on a card.
To view Amex Offers, go to the bottom of the account summary page of any American Express card, where you’ll see all the offers you’re eligible for. These offers come in different forms, including discounts and even in some cases bonus points.
We somewhat frequently see Amex Offers for discounts on hotel stays, in particular with Hilton and Marriott, given that Amex issues co-brand credit cards for both of those companies. We’re now seeing a new offer.
Earn Bonus Points At Hilton, Canopy Collection, & Curio With Amex Offers
At the moment there’s a new targeted Amex Offer for 5,000 bonus Amex Membership Rewards points when you spend $300 at Hilton, Curio Collection by Hilton, or Canopy by Hilton. The offer is valid for stays at participating properties through June 30, 2020.
It’s possible there’s also a version of the offer for $50 back rather than 5,000 bonus points, though I’d consider the 5,000 bonus points to be the better offer. That’s because I value Amex points at ~1.7 cents each, so to me that’s like ~$85 worth of points on a $300 purchase, which is about 28% back in the form of points.
The promotion is valid for stays at eligible properties in the US. It isn’t valid at any Hilton family brands other than the three listed above. You need to book directly with Hilton in order to be eligible for this promotion.
The terms also state “offer does not apply to advance purchase rates, including Advance Purchase, Save Now & Pay and Non-refundable rates.” I’m not sure to what degree that will actually be enforced.
Once again, this promotion is targeted, though it at least seems to be pretty widely targeted, as I see it on several cards earning Amex Membership Rewards points.
This should be combinable with all other Hilton promos, including their current global promotion offering up to triple points. Also keep in mind that separately there’s an Amex Offers deal for stays at DoubleTree by Hilton and Tapestry Collection by Hilton, and another one for stays at Conrad and Waldorf Astoria.
Was your account targeted for this new Amex Offers deal, and do you plan on taking advantage of it?
